It had glass-houses visibly disposed over the garden so that the peaches were always in sight. It had innumerable white-fronted gables. It had gutters and rain-pipes of a rich chocolate colour. In short (thought Reginald) the whole thing had escaped from Surrey when some stockbroker's back was turned, and was perfectly foul. Luckily it was ten miles away.
`I told Betty I couldn't be certain about you, naturally,' said Sylvia, `but you will come, won't you, darling?'
`I hate Seven Goldfish Bowls,' said Reginald. `I never know what to say to Baxter between "How are you?" and "Good-bye". Betty maddens me and I want to brain her, and I play tennis abominably. For all of which reasons, and not because I love you, I will come with you on Saturday.'
`Darling 1 It won't be so bad when we're there.'
`It will be much much worse. At least let me feel that I am a martyr.'
`Betty always brings one or two interesting people down with her for the week-end. I expect they'll want to talk to you about your book.'
Reginald thought: `I wish you wouldn't sayyour book. It's got a name. Bindweed. And if you don't like the name, sweetheart, say "the book".' Aloud he said, `There are no interesting people in London. The halfdozen portentous asses from whom she has delivered their friends for three short days will talk about themselves. I last saw my racquet in the apple-loft. That day I was killing wasps with it. Is it still there, do you think?'
`I'll find it, darling.'
So on Saturday he put on a pair of white flannel
